    Question Preamp recommendations ?

    Looking for a nice preamp in the under $200 range.

    I have a Hafler dh101 that I like the sound , but it is very basic and has limited ports..
    Also have a Yamaha C-4 , lots of controls, but I've never really liked the sound.
    Ideally looking for a BGW 203 control center, but they are very hard to find.

    Almost had a Musical Fidelity pre, but the seller crapped out.

    What do you all like in that price range ?
    Anything you want, you got it. Anything you need, you got it.
    Anything at all,,,, you got it.... Baby!

    I've not found anything with good functionality (nor proper grounding!) in that price range. Even on eBay, there are no bargains on good preamps...

    If you don't mind that its not a straight forward preamp and has all sorts of useless surround sound stuff the Sony TAE-1000ESD is a great piece.

    hello

    I had a carver C1 nice preamp with god phono MM and Mc , can be on ebay for a very reasonable price
    Adcom also on ebay the G555 or G565

    much much better is a tube pre especially with tube phono if you listen to vinyl but cost 1000 $
